Nicaragua’s Newest Airport Now Open

Nicaragua’s newest airport is officially open and that means it’s even easier to get to the enchanting Ometepe Island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Ometepe is home to richly diverse habitats and wildlife, as well as incredible culture and history.
